From the magazine this month:

Here’s something to make some of you feel old: this summer marks the 20th anniversary of Cool Britannia -that point in the mid-1990s when Britain ruled the pop-cultural waves thanks to Britpop, the YBA artists and designers such as Alexander McQueen. We’re not sure where the time has gone, but signs are that the cool times are back, asnd that’s why we’re celebrating the best of Blighty this month. Take Little Simz. She would have only been two in 1996, but right now she’s flying the flag for UK rap, having been hotly tipped by Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z. She’s one of a group of world-beating Brits we’re profiling. We’re also in Margate, which is fast gaining a reputation as the UK’s hippest seaside town, and backstage at London’s Theatreland to report on one of the UK’s most popular tourist attractions. In a word, it’s all cool. Enjoy the issue and see you next month.
